Jñāna Yoga is the Path to Authentic Self-Realization

It is based on the philosophy of nondualism, called Advaita (non-dual) Vedanta (Vedic knowledge). A similar non-dualistic view of reality is held by many branches of Buddhism, including Zen, by Taoism, by Islamic Sufism, as well as by some branches of Christianity that follow the mystical traditions and esoteric and apocryphal writings, such as the Gospel of Thomas.

Non dualism can also be discerned in the deeper meaning of Christ’s sayings in the Bible Some of the best known Hindu teachers of Jñāna Yoga are Vashishtha, Adi Shankara, Ramana Maharshi, and Nisargadatta Maharaj. Some of the best teachers of nondual approach to Divinity in Christian tradition are St. Thomas, Origen,, Meister Eckhart. St. Francis of Assisi, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Merton, Fr. Bede Griffith and Fr. Richard Rohr.

Jñāna yoga looks into the truth about who we are and what we are experiencing. The full realization of this truth brings enlightenment.

Jñāna yoga can serve all people, whatever path they take. It keeps the true objective of yoga insight and offers the blessing of truth getting closer at every step.
